class has been under the instruction
of Miss Gussie L. Hood, and their per
feet drill reflects much credit
upon their effient instructress.
The endless variety of movements.
the involutions and evolutioin
of the mazy marches, and all in p)erf ect

Exhibition of Preparatory Depart.
The exhibition of the Preparatorl
Department of Newberry College was'
held in the Opera House last Saturday
evening. This is always one of the
most interesting featuires of the clos
ing exercises of the college, for the
boys are naturally regarded with es
pecial favor. The audience was larg<
and enthusiastic, and the speakern
were greeted with rounds of applause
and sweet scented flowers. The en
tertainment consisted of some twentl
speeches, which were short, and fur
nished so great variety th:. the in
terest of the occasion continued un.
abated till the end.
Many of the young orators had nev
er appeared in the glare of the foot,
lights , some of them were mere scraps
of boys, whose appearance caused oni
almost involuntarialy to mutter, ii
"You'd scarce expect one of my age
To speak in public on the stage."
There were boys of many sizes, an<
they showed different degrees of tast4
ln selceting their extracts, as well a
different degres of excellence in de
livering them. This multitude 0:
speakers furnished not one failure
but some of them did remarkably well
We think, however, that it is.niot bes
to make special mention of those wh<
were nmost successful-some of then
had won applause on formeroccasionis
After the speaking a medal, award
ed by the teachers,. for general excel
lence in deportment and classetandl

G. G. Sale, Esq., with a short and ap
propriate presentation address. Zack
it will be remembered, chamnpionet

year ago, and was applauded to thi
echo. Taken altogether, the exhibi
tion was a success, and the parent:
and teachers of the boys should fee
gratitied. This department has beei
under the administration of Profs
Bittle and Werber, during the tern
just closed, who have done thorough
work, in a quiet and unostentation
The exercises on Satmiday nigh

An Interesting Letter.
SALUDA MILLS. NEWBERRY CO.
Messrs. Editors:-I see in your issu
of the 14th a very interesting an
complimentary article concerning th,
High School and town of Prosperity
and the lower section of the county
which article ought to be replied to b;
this section in the highest terms ani
compliments to your eexcellent paper
You have always been ready to publisi
any article from our section, and yoi
have encouraged us in our enterprise:
and our principal vocation, farming.
We believe in home-made corn
wheat, and oats; we believe in mann
facturing our own cottou, and conumn
ing our own produce so as to build ul
our farmers and other citizens. W<
should manufacture our cotton to make
it as profitable as possible, and buil<
up our cities and towns. To make on
country prosperous, we must increas<
the productiveness of our soil to it,
greatest capacity, we must encourag
and patronize the manufactures of ou:
own country so as to make them valu
able. We mast make labor honorabli
and proittable, and make good whole
some laws. Then will capital anm
skilled labor come to our State; them
will our schools and colleges flourish
then will our churches and mission;
succeed, and your subscription list bi
doubled. If we will pursue this polic
for ten years we will be astonished a
our success; it is our produce an
patronage that have made Mas
sachusetts, Rhode Island and othe
places, what they are.

Have You Asked Your Physician
"Yes." Well, what does he say ? "That
it is only another of the thousand-and-one
medical humnbugs." Is he helping you?
"No" Losing ground steadily? "I'm
afraid so." Not as well this year as last?
Then take a friend's advice and write to Drs.
Starkey & Palen, of 1109 Girard Street,
Philadelphia, giving them a plain statement
of your case. Ask them if they have ever
treated a similar case with their Compound
Oxygen, and if. in their judgment, there is
hope of your deriving any real and perman
ent benefit from its use. Ask them also to
send you a report of some cases like yours
which they have treated successfully. All
this will cost you nothing, As THESE PHYSI
CIANs MAKE NO CHARGE FOR CONSULTA
TIONS. If the evidence they furnish is not
satisfactory, then the matter can end, but if
they should put you in possession of facts
and evidence going to show that thousands
of persons suffering from chronic diseases
far worse, it may be, than yours, have been
restored to comparative good health during
the past thirteen years by the use of Com
pound Oxygen, the tridling effort of writing
may prove the means whereby you will find
a permanent relief from suffering, for which
you will never cease to be profoundly thank
If, however, you arc not ready to consult
them at present, drop a postal card and ask
them to send you their Treatise on Com
pound Oxygen. The information in regard
to their now Treatment which you will gain
from this Treatise will enable you to juge

I have been using ALLCOCK's PonoUs

with marked benefit. I have been much
troubled with Muscular Rheumatism; have
been treated by five of our best physicians
without receiving any relief whatever. I
then used ALLcocK's PLasTER on the parts
affected and I can assure you the pain haq
almost entirely left me. I ean recommend
them to every one as the best plaster made.
I have tried other kinds but found them

I have been greatly-troubled with Rheuma

try ALLCOCK'S Ponous PLASTERs (had used
two other kinds of so-called Porous Plasters,
which did me no good), but one of yours has
worked like a charm, giving me complete re

using them, and I consider myself cured.

DRIVEN MAD BY A GHOST.
A WOMAN'S LEAP THROUGH A WIN
Young Moore and His Mother Bee The Face
of the Dead Father and Husband-Three
Persons Made Mad by One light's Ex
SYNDERTOWN, June 19.-Last
night Mrs. Moore, a widow, who
lives with her young son in an old
dilapidated house at Brush Valley,
near here, was startled by hearing a
shriek, followed by agonizing yells,
in the room next to hers, occupied
by her son, a youth about sixteen
years of age. In a fright she ran
into the room and found ths boy al
most dead with fear and trembling
in every limb. She quieted his
fears and questioned him, and after
considerable delay he told her that
about twelve o'clock, while listening
to the furiously raging storm, he
was startled by seeing through the
dim light of a lamp which burned
in the room a man raising the
window. Almost paralyzed with
fear he sat up in bed, unable to
move, until by the aid of a vivid
flash of lightning he perceived the
features of the man to be those of
his father, who was killed in the
mines five years ago. With the
shriek that had so startled his
mother he sank on the bed and the
intruder fled hastily.
THE MOTHER SEES THE FACE.
When the mother had heard his
story she turned her gaze toward
the winaow and beheld the identi
cal face pressed against the pane.
With a terrific yell she sprang to
the window, and raising the sash
jumped through, striking the ground, I
twenty-five feet below, with terrific
force and injuring herself fatally.
The shrieks and moans of the young
Moore brought a few neighbors to
the spot, and they carried the limp
body of the woman into the house
and after a few. hours' labor suc
ceeded in bringing her to sensibility.
As soon as she fixed her eyes on
her son she burst into a violent fit of
laughter, in .which the son jofned
and which lasted until both fell to
the floor exhausted. - On the part of
young Moore the fit of laughter was
then followed by violent spasmodic
attacks. He foamed at the mouth,
barked like a dog and made vicious
snaps at those who attempted to
0 MADNESS EPIDEMIC.
A young farmer named Herrick
went up to him and, while attempt
ing to quiet him, caught hold of his
hand. No sooner had he done so
than he too was seized with fear
ful spasms and writhed on the floor
in intense agony, exhibiting the
peculiar symptoms manifested by
the others. The few other neigh
bors who had come to the scene
were so badly scared as to be of
little assistance, and they fled pre
cipitately, leaving the three maniacs
alone in the rooms. Mrs. Moore
was stark raving mad and soon the
two young men were busy at work
demolishing the furniture and strik
ing one another. One of the wo
men who had at first rushed to the
scene ran home and returned with
her father, an old army sergeant
named Billheimer, who ran into the
room and. grasping Herrick, threw
him to the floor and, putting his
foot upon his breast, bound him with
bed ropes. He then secured young
Moore in a like manner. Mrs.
Moore was bleeding from the wound
received from falling out of the
window and lay on the floor insen
sible. Lifting her in his arms Bill
heimer carried the woman to the
open air, the storm having ceased.
A PHYSICIAN IN ATTENDANCE.
One of the neighbors had mount
ed a horse about one hour before
and ridden at full speed across the
rough country road in search of a
doctor. After a long search he
found one and brought him to the
stricken family.. The young man
Herrick was taken home by his
father in the morning and another
physician attended him. No hope
is entertained of Mrs. Moore's re
covery, Her son was unusually
violent this morning and could
scrcely be held by four men. The
case has occasioned much excite
ment among the farmers through
out the neighborhood. Mrs. Moore's
husband was killed in the mining
region five years ago. She and her
son are practical, steady people.
Young Herrick is not so violent,
but arrangements are being made
for his removal to an asylum. Mrs.
Moore was in a sinking condition
this evening, and she will hardly
live until morning.
